Scorpions batsmen lack sting as Hurricanes huff & puff on day one

KINGSTON, Jamaica, WI - Jamaica Scorpions' batsmen were again found wanting as Leeward Islands Hurricanes dismissed the hosts for 197 in the first innings of the ninth-round regional four-day game at Sabina Park.

But the hosts fought back with the ball in the final session of yesterday's opening day to restrict the Hurricanes to 60-4 by close of play, according to Jamaica Observer today, January 12, 2018.

Scores: Scorpions 197 (59.1 overs); Hurricanes 60-4 (30 overs).

Former West Indies Under-19 player Keacy Carty, not out on 20, and wicketkeeper/batsman Jahmar Hamilton, on 17, are the batsmen set to take the crease when play resumes this morning at 10 o' clock.

Scorpions' leg break bowler Damion Jacobs was the architect of a top-order collapse, snaring three wickets as the Hurricanes slumped to 28-4.

In the Scorpions' innings, the West Indies Test batsman Jermaine Blackwood looked in supreme touch in a top-score of 81, but none of his teammates reached 30 in yet another tepid batting display this season.

The Hurricanes' pacer Sheeno Berridge, who only made his first-class debut last season, was easily the pick of the bowlers. The long-limbed swing bowler ended with 4-46.
